Scrappy Saturday: Make It Blue

Most of this week's sewing was focused on hand-stitching quilt bindings.  I'll eventually post pictures of the finished quilts, but for now they're just in that not-photogenic binding stage.

I did find the time to make some leader-ender spool blocks in this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color:  light blue.
These will round out a nice batch of blue spools for this on-going project.

Some more light blue scraps were turned into a happy, scrappy house block.  I especially like the blue toile-like fabric that makes up the main body of the house!

This week's blue house is brought to you by Brad Pitt.  His Make It Right Foundation has been building green homes in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward.  The homes are quite a departure from traditional New Orleans architecture!  More Make It Right homes can be seen here.

I'm linking up with the other Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilters over at Angela's blog.  I know there will be lots of scrappy blue inspiration over there!
